desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Body is a clear mahogany with no head. Aroma of caramel and butterscotch. Flavor is quite bold, with caramel and fall spices filling out the maltiness and a significant hop bite in the finish. Very tasty.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2010
20100926 tap at Wilmington. Darker appearance for a marzen with creamy, sticky beige head. Soft pretzel and raisin aroma with a mild leafiness. A bit on the sweet side but plenty drinkable and hardly too sweet. Decently done, if only above average, but well above average for a brewpub Oktoberfest.

On tap at Wilmington brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a one finger of frothy off white head wich leaves some lacing. The aroma is sweet bready malts with spicy hops. The taste is intially sweet, with a big breadiness that is balanced with some spicy drying bitterness, which gives this a very smooth finish. The mouthfeel is medium and crisp, with moderate carbonation.
